Yes, although my first of Tasmina's this certainly won't be my last. She writes with a similar esprit and style as Penny Vincenzi. The Deep Blue Sea has its contrasts frm the word go, the high life of the rich, powerful and successful, against the satisfyingly simple days of a scuba/freediver currently based on a Thai island. All deliciously wish fulfilment territory.
Two sisters, Diana and Rachel, have been estranged for several years, since one seemingly sat back and allowed a scandal to break loose in her press about the other. Their spikey mother Sylvia has taken wounded Diana's side, feathering her nest as a sideline. Julian, Diana's husband is a CEO of the Denver Group, his huge family firm. He has adopted Charlie, Diana's son from another relationship, as his own. Tasmina is brill at bringing to life her characters, especially the young with whom she has a deep affinity.
The beginning sees all fine and set fair, a fairy tale party, a so called 'small event' for sixty guests taking place. You can hear the chink of the delicate champagne glasses and watch the hired caterers passing amongst the diners with delicious treats. Repartee, the flashes of jewels, the gentle goading of friends to plan more and more daring holidays...
What happens next takes the whole book to sort out. Rachel's journalism skills and contacts have to be dusted off and reapplied. Settle down on your sun bed, snuggle into your hammock, relax under an umbrella, prepare to be drawn into a mystery that will have you gasping with surprise. Armchair travel of the most exciting variety, you are off to New York, Thailand, Venice, Jamaica, Rome, Naples and London.Read more ›
To everyone outside looking in, it seems as though Julian and Diana have the most perfect lives and the word at their feet, they seem to have everything they could ever want. But in reality life isn't as rosy at it seems. After Julian dies very suddenly and unexpectedly, Diana suspects that there is more to it than meets the eye. Desperate for answers and to discover the truth, she makes the phonecall that she never wanted to - to her sister Rachel. Rachel used to be a tabloid reporter, and although she pretends to be living the dream, the truth is that she was driven from her career after the phone hacking scandal, and has become estranged from her family. But Rachel is determined to make up for the past and uncover the truth...
I absolutely loved Deep Blue Sea! Having been a huge fan of Tasmina Perry for many years I always look forward to her new releases with so much excitement, and let me tell you it is SUCH a joy to have been able to once again delve into the wonderful world of Tasmina's stories. I was hooked as soon as I read the description on the back of the book, I was really intrigued as to what could have happened to Julian and I was keen to start reading! I started Deep Blue Sea one morning and I finished it in two sittings - I was so involved in the novel and gripped by what was happening, I couldn't put it down and found I was carrying the book around with me everywhere, reading at every moment I could!
The plot line is fantastic, there was a great air of mystery around Julian and the truth about what had really happened, and I so intrigued!Read more ›
I enjoyed reading this novel, and it's certainly perfect for an escapist beach holiday. However, I found that it had similar flaws to her previous release, Perfect Strangers. In short, I can't connect with Perry's fragile, damaged heroines - Diana being an obvious example - and find it much more interesting to read about her stronger, more intelligent women, like Rachel. (This is probably why my favourite novel of hers is Private Lives, where hotshot lawyer Anna dominates the book). Unfortunately, because about half of the novel is told from Diana's point of view, I found myself skimming chapters, because it was difficult to sympathise with her woes. It was also a shame, especially given the novel's title, that more wasn't made of Rachel's diving career in Thailand. I loved the account of free-diving at the beginning of the novel, and wished that Perry had returned to this in the narrative. While the central plotline was gripping, the settings weren't as interesting or varied as I've come to expect from Perry.Read more ›
